Microelectrode holders

Microelectrode holders


Our precision engineered, minimal drift, electrode holders have been rigorously tested and used extensively for successful low noise, whole-cell and single-channel recording in electrophysiology laboratories around the world.


Our Minimal Drift range comes with 5 types of fitting and specific sizes for different OD electrode glass: 

S - Screw fitting for Axon HLU type headstages and Sutter Instrument IPA® family of integrated patch amplifiers
P - Push fit for Axon HL-1 type headstages
H - BNC connector type for HEKA Co. headstages and some NPI and Dagan amplifiers.
HS-2A - we also make a special holder to fit the early Axon HS-2A headstage. 
CV7A - to fit the obsolete Axon/PatchMaster CV-7A headstage


See Choosing a holder for advice on which type of holder to purchase. This page also has a compatability table matching headstages with holders.


Minimal Drift

Our ISO type of minimal drift microelectrode holder was developed in conjunction with scientists at the Department of Pharmacology at University College London (UCL), now Neuroscience, Physiology and Pharmacology, and is in use in many of the world's best electrophysiology labs. We would recommend this range as it is more stable than our original DB range.
